believe will help lay the groundwork for president karzai's discussions tomorrow with president obama president obama on these and other topics. president karzai and i believe very strongly that general allen's plan that was adopted in chicago by nato is working and we are we are fully committed to vanishing the job. i also assured the president that my successor, secretary of defense, will be equally committed to working with him and achieving the goal of an independent and strong afghanistan. on that note again i want to commend president obama and his decision to nominate chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. i have known chuck for a long time. i think he is the right person to lead the department at this time. not only because he is a decorated yet mom combat veteran, but he understands washington and understands the issues that confront our national defense. despite a lot of very severe budget pressures which i will speak to in a moment's, we need to maintain, and i believe he believes we need to maintain the world's most powerful and ready force to deal with the secur
